This writing unit is designed to include the three main types of writing required by the Common Core Standards: explanatory writing, narrative writing and opinion writing. Each type of writing includes the following: mini-poster, student planning page, graphic organizer for the rough draft/sloppy copy and two final copy pages (the first one includes headline, mid-line and baseline, the second one includes just baseline).
This product is a great way to get into the spirit during the month of December WITHOUT any mention or reference to holidays.
